Our customers depend on us each day to deliver reliable energy. With approximately 1.4 million customers across the state, it is critical that we provide quality service today while responsibly planning for what we‘ll need in the future.

APS is the state's leader in clean energy – providing customers with energy that is 51% clean today and growing. We do this while maintaining reliability and affordability through a balanced and diverse energy portfolio, which includes nuclear, solar, energy storage, natural gas, energy-saving customer programs and more.

Integrated Resource Plan (IRP)

Every three years, APS performs a comprehensive study to identify how much energy our customers will need over the next 15 years and what resources we’ll use to meet those needs. We consider factors like how much economic growth is expected in Arizona, what new technologies may be available and how weather could impact energy demand. The results of the study are filed with the Arizona Corporation Commission as our Integrated Resource Plan (IRP).

Our Priorities

Maintain Affordability

Affordable service for our customers is a priority and a key driver in the decisions we make as a company.

Secure a Clean, Balanced Energy Mix

Clean resources are among the most affordable options available today, and over the long term, they provide the greatest value as part of a diverse energy mix. Learn more about our Clean Energy Commitment here.

Stakeholder & Business Resources

Resource Planning Advisory Council (RPAC)

The Resource Planning Advisory Council (RPAC) was formed in early 2021 with a diverse set of stakeholders to collaborate with APS in the development of the Company’s 2023 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP). In light of the rapidly changing energy environment evident across the country and in particular in Arizona, RPAC infuses additional stakeholder participation and transparency into the IRP process. The latest RPAC meeting presentations and minutes are linked below. If you have any questions, please contact us at rpac@aps.com.
